Overview

"The Companions are back and the balance of Krynn is at stake, in the magnificent conclusion to the Lost Chronicles. The world celebrates Spring Dawning. The War of the Lance is nearing its end - for good or ill. The wizard, Raistlin Majere, has become a Black Robe and, using the dragon orb in his possession, he travels to Neraka, the lord city of the Dark Queen. Raistlin ostensibly plans to work for her, though in reality he means to further his own quest for power." "Takhisis plans to destroy the gods of magic on the Night of the Eye, when all the wizards will be congregated at the Tower of Wayreth. Raistlin has to find a way to thwart the plot, even though this means doing battle with his own sister, the Dragon Highlord Kitiara, and her terrifying ally, the death knight, Lord Soth. And still he must overcome his final foe: the archmagus Fistandantilus, who seeks to kill Raistlin and steal his soul." Krynn's future has been written. People think they know how the story ends. But one night and one fateful decision by Raistlin Majere may change it all.

    Best by Weis and Hickman yet!

    This book settles the questions about the life of Raistlin Majere. It is the best book by Weis and Hickman to date!

    A Good Book to End the Legacy...

    Reading this book was bittersweet for me. On the one hand, I wanted to read it every evening, while at the same time was dreading approaching the end after turning each page. Weis & Hickman do not disappoint in telling what happened to Raistlin after escaping what was thought as certain death on the ship, the Perechon, caught in the Maelstrom. Raistlin's travels were worthwhile to follow and didn't have trouble keeping up. If anything, it makes you want to go back and reread Dragons of Spring Dawning to see if everything is "woven" together as good as how Weis and Hickman compose in Hourglass Mage. Whether that was the intent or not, it makes you wanting more....somehow.

    Pretty good, considering last year's drama.

    While I did not QUITE find this book up to the standards presented by the other Raistlin-centric novels (some sections still read rather painfully like passages from the playbook) it was pretty decent and certainly draws one in and the writing smooths out despite the occasional bump or strange diversion. Definitely shows how far these two have come since they began writing the series!
    Overall, I enjoyed this conclusion to Raistlin's story and it certainly leaves JUST enough ambiguity leading into the life as Master of Past and Present that I was forced to think long and hard about this character who as been my number one favorite since I was about 11 years old (wow, 10 years!). I can promise that those who have so looked forward to this book's publication that it won't disappoint you.

    Meh

    I didn't really care for this whole series of books. I feel like Weis and Hickman lost their edge that made other Dragonlance books MUCH better. I feel like the Dark edges of the characters were watered down

    Another great Dragonlance novel

    I just finished reading and im sad to say that I'm done with this trilogy. I love these novels and wish they could go on forever! Im only slightly disappointed that the last few chapterd weren't fleshed out a bit more, but it's only a minor complaint! Thank you Margaret and Tracy for years of entertainment!!

    This book is for people that have fallen in Love with the characters and world of Dragonlance. It gives more insight and stories to the life of Raistlin Majere. And if you know who he is you should really get this book...it is GREAT!!! Now for people thinking of starting to read Dragonlance, this is not it. Start with the Original Trilogy.

    I Also Recommend:

    Best book out of The Lost Chronicles

    This book is all about Raistlin and adds some interesting new twists to what exactly his relationship was to Fistandantilus. Most of the story takes place in Neraka with Raistlin planning plots and counterplots to all the different factions currently in the city. The rest of the companions do make small appearances plus Lord Soth and Slith have small roles as well. If your a Dragonlance fan and have enjoyed the other Lost Chronicles books you'll love this one.
    You can still enjoy the book without doing so but I would recommend reading Soulforge first before this one and to a lesser extent Heroes and Fools.
